33 [1885 20 penni 4-Numeral, Orange, Perf 12.5] (F-VF) on neat, small 28 April 1885 cover with "FINSKA POST KUPEN No 12" RAILWAY cancellations. Customary "ANK 28/4" (receiving) side postmark, but with unusually bold style of lettering. The date is quite early and defines this as one of the early printings which are scarcer on cover. Wonderful railway postmarks.

33 [1885 20 penni 4-Numeral, Orange, Perf 12.5] (F-VF) tied on very neat 22 May 1886 cover by carved "cork" grid cancellation and JOENSUU 2-ring dated side town cancellation. Joensuu had several similar style postmarks. Customary "ANK 25/5" (receiving) postmark. All such carved postmarks are at least scarce, and often rare, on cover -- especially examples this nice!

34 [1885 25 penni 4-Numeral, Ultramarine, Perf 12.5] (VF) on 1 May 1889 cover to the U.S., from IDENSALMI with "arc" style cancellation. Heavily worn, but this is quite typical for covers of the time period to emigrants to North America -- the recipients apparently often carried the "heart warming" letters in their pockets. Facit 2013 value SEK 1200 = $190, but seldom seen.
